Raspberry Pi-alike NanoPi K1 Plus: For $35 we get 2xRAM, 4K video, Gigabit Ethernet

Video: How to set adult your Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+.

FriendlyElec has expelled a $35 opposition to a Raspberry Pi 3 B+, outdoing a better-known house with 2GB of memory, Gigabit Ethernet, and a some-more absolute GPU.

The NanoPi K1 Plus follows FriendlyElec’s Nano Pi K2, expelled final year with identical measure to a Raspberry Pi 3 for $40.

The NanoPi K1 Plus shares identical specs to a Nano Pi K2 and maintains a Raspberry Pi’s form factor, though offers double a RAM, Gigabit Ethernet, and 4K video playback.

The device also has a same 40-pin GPIO pin-header as a Raspberry Pi 3, so it should work with Raspberry Pi accessories and housings.

Instead of a NanoPi K2’s 1.5GHz Amlogic processor, FriendlyElec opted for an Allwinner H5 quad-core 64-bit Cortex A53 processor that runs during 1.4 GHz as good as a six-core Mali450 GPU. The Raspberry Pi 3 B+ uses a 1.4GHz Broadcom BCM2837B0, Cortex-A53 ArmV8 64-bit SoC.

The NanoPi K1 facilities 3 USB 2.0 ports, one microUSB 2.0 pier for power, a microSD slot, while wireless support includes 802.11 b/g/n.

An HDMI pier supports 4K video output. However, it’s limited to 30 frames per second. It also has one GPIO button, a red LED energy indicator, a immature LED standing light, heatsink, and a built-in infrared receiver.

Multimedia facilities embody a DVP camera interface, a built-in mic, and a 3.5mm audio jack.

Naturally, to use a NanoPi K1 users will need to have their possess monitor, TF label keyboard and mouse, and FriendlyElec suggest a horde mechanism is a 64-bit complement using Ubuntu 16.04.

FriendlyElec provides a FriendlyCore OS, that is formed on UbuntuCore. Further selection and setup sum are also accessible on the NanoPi K1 Plus wiki.
